    Default Use login credentials with avconv

    This is not exactely a wowza query , but any workaround in wowza to achieve this would also be appreciated.

    avconv should according to documentation (e.g be able to send in the format ftmp://usernameassword@serverip/live/streamname
    However I get this fault when using that format :
    /usr/bin/avconv -i rtsp:// -vcodec copy -acodec copy -f flv rtmp://gym:mypasswordhere@myserverip/live/streamname
    avconv version 9.14-6:9.14-1rpi1rpi1, Copyright (c) 2000-2014 the Libav developers

    Problem accessing the DNS. (addr: gym)
    rtmp://gym:mypasswordhere@myiphere:/live/streamname: Unknown error occurred

    Same probem with dashes around rtmp://... Any suggestions ? With ffmpeg this format works.

    I'm not sure about avconv, but I know it's very similar to ffmpeg.
    With FFMPEG you need to use the secureURLparams module in Wowza Streaming Engine
    along with a commandline similar to this:
     ffmpeg -re -i sample.mp4 -c:v copy -c:a copy -f flv rtmp://wowzaserver/app?doPublish=12345/streamname
    There are some more details to be found at this FFMPEG forum thread.
